  • Rowan University

    Envisioned to create a new engineering complex with existing Rowan Hall, the new Engineering Hall is home to teaching and research laboratories for biomedical, civil and environmental, and electrical and computer engineering. The building includes laboratory support spaces, shops, classrooms, faculty offices, collaboration spaces, group study rooms, and student commons. The two facilities are connected by a bridge crossing a campus roadway.

  • How the Core Facility Enhances Efficiency, Savings, Collaboration, and Access

    The Core Labs at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia are run as a centrally governed “one lab” facility. In addition to successfully providing state-of-the-art equipment, training, and services to students, researchers, faculty, staff, industry partners, and collaborators, the core labs extend their services to external users, such as government organizations, research institutes, and other universities. By centralizing the business operations of 10 specialized labs, the model fosters collaboration, rationalizes necessary square footage, improves access to equipment and services, and eliminates duplication of resources, thus enhancing overall efficiency and reducing expenditures. 

  • The University of Texas at Austin opened the $186 million Robert B. Rowling Hall in February of 2018.
